Meet Sydney <3

Hey guys

I haven't been around here for a while, to be honest I'm more active on 2 other bird forums including talk cockatiels (coz hey - I have cockatiels ) but I got a PM today so it encouraged me to log back on

A lot of you probably already know this if you go on the other 2 forums but for those who don't....I'd like you to meet Sydney aka Syd











We're working on this landing on the head issue! I'm his favorite person so far and it doesn't help that he's obsessed with trying to preen my hair, so when he flys to me if I don't have an arm out because I haven't called him he just lands on my head *ouch!*

He's 14months old and hand reared. He's been with us since Friday last week. Despite being owned by a guy before he's actually more of a ladies man! He's civil to hubby and son but goes out of his way to get cuddles from any women and talks up a storm for my daughter

I'm working on changing his diet because it was mainly a fatty seed and nut mix. I also bought him some more toys as he only had 2 swings come with him and I will probably upgrade the cage too but I'm not in a rush right now as he comes out 3 times a day anyway for flying, cuddles, roaming around etc.

He's really sweet, he was just being rehomed as his previous owner kept him in the work place but felt that he wasn't spending enough time with him and wanted better especially since he's a young bird. I think that's really considerate and loving of him personally...and I'm a bit in shock actually that we now own Syd as it was all very sudden! As many of you know though we've been asking about Galah's for the best part of a year already.
